I visited my mother in England in May 2008,  a few months before she passed away. The weather was glorious and we were able to sit outside in the garden my father had tendered for so many years. I have a lovely photo of her taken with pink roses blooming behind her. I took a close up of one of the roses and shortly after she passed away. I transformed that rose into a wonderful rainbow of colors with her smile in my mind as I sat at my computer transforming the image.
